COLLEGE PARK, MD. — North Carolina allowed its first goal in nearly 500 minutes of men’s soccer action Friday as top-ranked Maryland used a goal from Schillo Tshuma in the first overtime period to win 1-0.
Patrick Mullins made a run down the flank in the 98th minute and entered the box before firing a shot, which was deflected by Tshuma into the back of the goal.
The Tar Heels (11-2-1, 4-1-1 ACC) had a chance to put away the match in the final minute of play when Rob Lovejoy was dragged down in the box, giving UNC a penalty chance.
Lovejoy took to the spot and fired a waist-high shot to the left side of the goal, but Maryland’s (13-0-1, 6-0) Keith Cardona guessed correctly and made the save.
The rebound kicked out to the left side of the box, where Verneri Valimaa sent a shot on target that Cardona saved as well.
